Welcome to the Solar Century

Welcome to the Solar Century http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com...solar-century/

Until a few years ago the suggestion that solar power might provide the answer to the intertwined problems of long term energy security and climate change would have been dismissed as a pipedream. The high cost of solar cells, their inefficiency in converting the sun’s rays into electricity and the lack of state investment or assistance for renewable energy start-ups meant there was little hope.


Does anyone have any information on the "new research" that PV for home use is generates more greenhouse gases than the energy it offsets?


And I totally didn't realize the solar program in Germany - that's really cool
